The Bullet And The Bass Trombone

Allow TW London to introduce the day’s artistic aria, a symphony in five cultural movements…


Andy Zaltzman – Satirist For Hire, Soho Theatre, 9-21 Sep
A master in the art of satire, biting ‘The Bugle’ podcaster Zaltzman roasts various political/social/trivial moans and groans proposed by ticket-holders, buttering those crowd-commissioned hot potatoes to order. Details and tickets here.


Gil Scott-Heron Re-Envisioned, Jazz Cafe, 9 Sep
Late hip hop innovator Gil Scott-Heron is immortalised and ‘Re-Envisioned’ at the able hands of Dead Prez MC M1, who tonight joins with Gil’s one-time flautist Brian Jackson and iconic jazz sticksman Mike Clark. Details and tickets here.


The Bullet And The Bass Trombone, The Shed (National Theatre), 9-11 Sep (pictured)
Sleepdogs’¬†vivid and intricate riff is based on an orchestra trapped in a city at war. When the musicians lose each other in the melee, the band’s lone composer shares their story, piecing together a mosaic of chaos, lost voices and rifle shots. Details and tickets here.

Miranda Sings, Leicester Square Theatre, 9-14 Sep
Stateside singer Colleen Ballinger dresses as her pitchy, lipstick-smeared viral alias Miranda Sings to… well, sing her interpretations of today’s greatest pop hits. Details and tickets here.

The Proposal/The Bear, St James Theatre, 9-20 Sep
Butterfly and director Edward Hulne pack a pair of bite-sized Chekhovian jollies, namely one-act farces ‘The Proposal’ and ‘The Bear’, into a 45-minute lunchbreak. Patrons are invited to BYO sandwiches, and/or chomp on a ¬£5 snack bag, made on site. Details and tickets here.
